Very Important Question (V.I.Q.) ;-)
Who am I? ---> Gi0bbE
Welcome to the *Unofficial* DivXripper Project page.
-*- DISCLAIMER -*-
I dont' know. I'm only a man who appreciate the work of 'Hellstorm' that's
the original mind, official author and the current mantainer of the DivXripper
It seems he hasn't much time to work on, so I'm trying to enjoy myself
tuning the source three and "completing" the work.
For now I'm not intended to release my own source because I'm waiting
an answer from Hellstorm regarding What does he thinks about and
if he would like to let me be the mantainer of the DivXripper project.
DivXripper is a GPLed program to convert files from MPEG to AVI using the
DivX ;-) Codec under the Linux Operating System. It also has a very simple
player, but right now it sucks a lot !!
It uses libmpeg3 to
decode MPEG2 files and avifile
to build and encode AVI files with DivX ;-) codec.
To build this program i have taken ideas and some code from various programs:
vcr and specially
mpeg2divx. Thanx to all of you !!
I started this project when i tested mpeg2divx and it lacked some features i
wanted. Now it has these features, but meanwhile i have had some fun coding
my program :-)
This project is in a very initial stage, so now i need lots of beta-testers !!
I hope I'll make the source tarball or Patch available as soon as possible.
Current Unofficial stable version is 0.1.5.
Latest Official stable version is 0.1.3
Changelog for the 0.1.5 can be found here
You will need SDL libd>=1.1.5 and
avifile (alternative link) >0.53.5
- If it is run in a Pentium III/Modern Celeron with kernel 2.2 it
will crash with "illegal instruction" error message. The reason are the SSE
instructions which are not supported under kernel 2.2 but are used
automatically by DivX codec when dectected. Under kernel 2.4 the program runs
- Video and Audio don't seem to synchronize very will in some cases
that seem to be all NTSC files. The reason is the way to calculate the audio
samples per video frame.
